"Reducing excessive police incidents: Do notices to owners work?" by Dr. Troy Payne. Security Journal advance online publication 16 February 2015; doi: 10.1057/sj.2015.2
This study examines the impact on the count of police incidents of a notice of potential future fees or fines to property owners in Anchorage, Alaska and Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was found that police incidents are reduced by 24–28 per cent after a notice of potential fines, with two-thirds of properties experiencing a decline in police incidents post-notice. The implications for policy and practice are discussed.
